Degustation notes

A bouquet mingling aromas of black berries, vanilla and spices, expressive in the mouth, dense and fresh with soft tannins, a long intensely fruity finish. A very accessible, impressive wine.

Special notes

The Château Le Boscq domain north of Saint-Estèphe is situated in the top most gravelly hights of Saint-Christoly commune, overlooking the Gironde. It is part of the same property as the Château Patache d'Aux, but the Château Le Boscq wines macerate for less timeand are aged for only part of the time in oak barrels in order to rapidly develop their taste. The Medoc wine region extends along the left bank of the Gironde, forming a peninsula north of Bordeaux.

    15.5.2013 : Dunkle tiefe Farbe, etwas eingeschlafenes Bouquet (normal wohl für die nächsten 2-3 Jahre), tiefgründiger Körper, Blockbusterhaft mit noch etwas Adstringenz, Klassetannine, lang und länger, grossartiger Bordeaux mit Zukunft! Ausserordentliches Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis.
